About Gospel For Asia:
Gospel for Asia (GFA), founded by KP Yohannan, is regarded as one of the most significant missionary movements of the late 20th century. Based in Texas, it works in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, China, and Thailand. It supports more than 50 Bible colleges and supports graduates to found new congregations – Believers Church – and is active in humanitarian work and education.
GFA's mission is to be followers of Christ and to fulfill the Great Commission among the unreached in Asia through training, sending out and assisting qualified laborers in partnership with the Body of Christ. GFA trains and sends national missionaries to reach out into areas and to meet people who have never heard the name of Jesus Christ. GFA brings aid and hope to some of the most downtrodden people in the Eastern Hemisphere.
Through its Bridge of Hope program GFA has educated and nurtured more than 60,000 children to date. GFA carries out its services through various programs such as Clean Water, Compassion Services, Radio in Asia, Flood Relief, Bible Colleges and Children's Ministries.
DONOR ADVISORY: On October 6, 2015, Gospel for Asia US had its membership in the US organization, Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) revoked for standards breaches. ECFA cites infractions relating to governance, financial oversight and truthfulness in communications. This follows a year of controversy and investigation into the lack of transparency and inconsistencies in how funds are distributed. GFA US was a charter member of the ECFA founding in 1979. The ECFA polices the financial integrity of Christian organizations and donors regard membership as a stamp of approval.(1)
In F2013, GFA's administrative costs were 5% of revenues. Fundraising costs were 2% of donations and are taken from the charity's T3010 CRA filing. GFA has $3.8m of funding reserves which cover 23% of annual program costs.
